Wings, rudder and horizontal are done.  Screwed up the elevator (tip rib alignment) probably could have fixed it but would never be happy, scrapped it :>( , got some spare aluminum to use ;>)  Nothing another $400 can't fix.  We learn by doing, I hope.

I take a piece of mono fishing line and hang the parts that I reject over top of my work table to remind me to measure twice and cut once.

My most common mistake is to make 2 left parts instead of a left and a right.

$400.00 isn't nothing, wait until you measure your bottom floor skin wrong!!!
